ABSTRACT
The article concerns the occasional poetry of the Philomaths, which has not been highly valued in historical and literary studies. This resulted from the fact that this work was regarded as not Romantic enough, although the Philomaths themselves were treated as initiators of a new movement in literature. The name day poems, letters, and parting verses did not suit the image of the onset of Vilnius Romanticism; they were associated rather with Classic aestheticism. However, the occasional poetry of the Philomaths should not be described as a kind of confrontation between Classicism and Romanticism, but as a phenomenon of Rococo literary culture and a cultural manifestation of communication among a group of friends, within the circle of a certain special rhetorical community.
